When do I use for loops?

Python for loops is typically used when we have a block of code, where you want to repeat a fixed number of times.

The array that the for loop iterates through is not necessarily a list. It can be a tuple. Sometimes it can be a dictionary. It can even be a string so every object that is made of other simpler objects.

Simple Python For Loop Example :

This is the simplest example code of python for loops.

Output: Java
C++
Perl
Python

The for loop doesn’t require an index variable to set before the event, as the for the command itself allows for this.

range() Function

The range() function returns a sequence of numbers,  where its start from – 0 by default and increments by 1. And Finish at a specified number (last number ). See this example.
